Sick of shooting grainy, low-resolution video on your smartphone? Plenty of camera manufacturers now put high-definition video capabilities in your pocket, and today’s Daily Deal from Target (Stock Quote: TGT) does it on the cheap.
The Aiptek High-Definition Digital Camcorder normally sells for $179.99, but today only Target is selling it for $119.99, a savings of 33%. Amazon also recently marked down the camera to the same price, but Target offers free shipping, so it wins this one by a nose.
As for the camera itself, it’s certainly legit. It shoots in 1080p, the gold standard of high definition. And if you’re trying to get an action shot – say, your kid’s soccer game or a stampede of wildebeest – you can bump the resolution down to 720p and shoot at 60 frames per second. It also offers a 5x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom, and can shoot still photos as well as video.
It is a bit on the bulky side, so if you’re looking for a camcorder you can slip into your skinny jeans you may be better off going with a more compact camera like the Flip Video. But the Aiptek offers higher resolution and zoom for a lower price, so if you don’t mind carrying it around in your bag, grab this deal while it lasts.
